  • Rented a pole, bought bait and got some free advice from the gentleman behind the register. Fished from the pier till the bait ran out, caught 8 or 9 fish. Great, cheap fun!!! 
  • Rating the pier only as restaurant there has a separate review page. The pier is old and a bit worn, but it is pretty much just like I remember it as a kid decades ago. Tackle shop has any essentials ...  read more »
  • This is an old pier - the planks aren't evenly spaced. It was pretty cool to wander out to the end and see what everyone was catching. 
  • Great view. There is an inside section and a deck bar. They have a good beer selection. The food is great for breakfast. After that it is mostly fried food. Did I mention the view! Great atmosphere.
  • Beautiful views of the ocean, great food (breakfast, lunch, and dinner). This place also has a gift shop and a little arcade.
  • My family has eaten here dozens of times. But tonight we Came in to half full capacity waited for 10 mins to be seated. Waitresses were running around like it was their first day on the job and as if there was a line out the door. One wearing a pink dress like you would wear to prom. She looked at us multiple times like all the other waitresses but never said we will be with you shortly. I finally told the pink dress lady we will seat ourselves. Took another 15 mins to get a waitress over to take our drinks. Instead of saying hi or hey yall like we are usually greeted with we got what do you what to drink. After giving the drink order before she left she informed us that they were short staffed. 4 Waitresses working just the restaurant at half capacity? That's no excuse to be rude. After getting our drinks we waited 22 minutes before our waitress came back and said go ahead. Yes that's it "go ahead." I ordered the whiskey chicken with the sauce. The chicken was perfectly cooked but the sauce was extremely watered down. I don't know what is going on but yall ready need to fix it and fast. The only reason I'm giving 3 stars is for the service I received in the past. No excuse for what happened tonight.
  • The fries were good. But the grilled cheese had no taste. We were also brought Brown sugar instead of Old Bay™. It's not the best restaurant, but it's not the worst.
  • Great fishing pier with a nice restaurant attached to it. Get your seats early though and don't expect available seating for a large group right awag
